    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large and high calibre peer group. Provides access to a great amount of technical standards and guidelines. Technical support from various centres the world over is truly amazing.

    Cons

    Some of the senior staff are well-entrenched for years and seem to view new staff as threats. Group meetings of project staff are rarely held. Project work force tends to be too large and unwieldy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to bring in fresh thoughts and break up the old-fashioned heirarchical functioning.

    I worked at Fluor

    Pros

    Fluor has business world wide, including logcap project in the Middle East that enables its employees to get multi skilled which is a great benefit for each one of us that worked there.

    Cons

    Fluor has taken some of the toughest global challenges and there is a great open umbrella of jobs that each employee can reach if professional knowledge and skills shown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More ex Fluor employees should be given a chance for rehire.

    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company pays good, bosses are very cool and cooperative, company's operational set up requirements are very nice and clean i.e wonderful environment to work in with.

    Cons

    Hard work required some times in shifts that disturbs life set up, but over all its a good progressive company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try to keep an eye on every individual.
    If the company is operating in multi cultural country or environment kindly heir a balanced work force , do not increase a particular number of nationality in work force because it becomes the reason for politics in company and departments as well as personal growth stops due to being left alone.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor

    Pros

    Available training within company. Promotions possible. Travel available. Adequate and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Cliques can be roadblocks to personal growth and promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider yourself team members instead of disciplinarians and authoritarians. Upper management should be more aware of project managers' leadership styles on jobsites and do away with cliques, holier than thou attitudes, and tough guy mentalities. Fostering a team is much more valuable and fruitful than whipping the underlings. Fear of being judged harshly and reprimanded unjustly does not produce contented and dedicated employees. It was always very disappointing to witness a jobsite run according to these principles. With this being said, I must add that there are some very good managers with excellent skills, values and work ethics within the Fluor organization.

    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This was a great first job out of college. They were able to provide good training and real life experience. The pay was very good for a first job.

    Cons

    The work comes and goes and when things are good they are very good and when they are bad you get laid off. You figure they pay you extra to compensate for the fact that they may get rid of you after your project is over.

    Pros

    Flex-Time, every other Friday off, great community relations program

    Cons

    Job Security is based on the current demand for primarily Oil & Gas, if demand goes down you might not have a project to work on....to me, that is kind of scary
